Oil and Wax, 16 x 12 inches
This oil and wax painting is part of a series that conveys an impression of the spaces where water finds its way between steep, dominant and ominous rock formations. Though these are relatively small works, there is an intricate blending of colour and a heavy reliance on texture and detail throughout to effectively portray the majesty of the scene.
“There are forms that can only be seen when you are near a canvas, others only appear when you are far away. To paint is to know how to put nothing on a canvas, and have it look like something when you stand back.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
